These Cinnamon Roll Shaped Pumpkins are easy to make and perfect for a festive fall breakfast!

It’s definitely fall in our neck of the woods. We live in Northern Michigan, about an hour south of Canada and there is definitely a bite in the air. This evening we are headed to a our local school’s homecoming football game and it’s the perfect weather for it. It’s sunny and crisp and perfect for a evening of high school football. That said, it was 80 degrees a few days ago (welcome to Michigan folks) and tonight I’ll be wearing my parka and a snow pants. Go figure.

Tomorrow my son plays Pop Warner football (think 5th and 6th grade football) and my girls and I are planning on staying home. The game is several hours away and I honestly don’t feel like making the drive and it’s calling for rain so it will probably will the perfect day to stay home, do some fall baking and watch some movies!

These cinnamon roll shaped pumpkins are so easy to make using store bought cinnamon rolls. I made extra icing because we love icing and used gel food coloring to change the icing from white to green and orange. My kids love cinnamon rolls (even the store bought kind) so they gobbled them up. I love them too so I’m happy they love helping finish them off.
